JEM77B would be so perfect, but...

...why the stock ordinary inlays? I wish it had something cool like the JEM7V does, maybe they didn't want to take away from the mirror finish, but I think at least like a pyramid inlay or something less plain would have made it even better.

Just a trivial rant, lol.

Well - I purchased the BRMR stock from Rich (Ibanez Rules) He was kind enough to remove the neck for me and have it shipped to Sims Custom Shop in the UK. So GiS is right. Well - kind of, lol. It's not a replacement fretboard / neck. He just removed the frets and inlayed the chrome mirror vine in the Jem neck. So now it's done and he (Martin Sims) is going to ship it back to Rich and then Rich will do his final setup and everything (and I DO mean everything) and then ship it to me all ready to pick up N' play Now THAT is what I call SERVICE!!!!! Rich is a standup guy who went out of his way to help me get the best BRMR with the darkest sexiest rosewood. I've already told him he needs to change the name of his site to "RICH RULES", lol.

Petrucci - it will look somewhat like that, but the VINE is chrome on dark non-streaky rosewood. (again - thanks to Rich)

But it'll still look rockin

Be assured I WILL post pics upon it's arrival

Oh and welcome Jeff!!
